Back to business as usual at Berlin’s registration offices
In order to get an appointment at the municipal registration office you have to wait up to two months. The hotline to get an appointment on a short term notice was closed right after the Berlin election. That means you have to wait again for minimum a month. You should keep that in mind when making an appointment with the foreign department to apply for residence permit or work permit.
Our tip: If you know when you will move to Berlin exactly, ask for an appointment. You can make it online.
